Catronian Archipelago provides a place for sailors and roleplayers. Lots of sea to sail on, and you can test serveral unique tall ships expecially made for Golden age of sail roleplay! Several groups of captains sail here to shoot and sink the enemy's ships! Sensational events with all the fire and noise that comes with it! This world is built on low lag and low server use for optimal sailing conditions and user friendly for people with slower connections or less advanced hardware ( without losing the detailed wonderful sim design). Ships are scripted by Christine Nyn and Kayaker Magic. In events we use the SPD scripted ships of different classes.

Theme is late 18 th century, Europe, with a touch of fantasy/medieval/metiterranean style. RP is lighthearted , no strict rules. As our world has focus on sailing and sailing battles ,we dont offer farming systems or money systems that will end in overload of script usage and less fun for sailors.

The little cities Port Hope and Port of Morgan provide little houses available for sailors and landlubbers to have a free home, up to 500 prims. Also shops for themed clothes and tavern " The Green Dragon" with darts game and greedy table. Free furniture and a free Bwind sailing boat available for new ones. IM Trouble Ahead for more information. At the docks various ships can be used, HUDS provided, as also vendors for the SPD scripted ships.

Around port hope you will find little islands worth visiting , and every island has its own story, adding the magical atmosphere of this world!

Sailors can rezz their ships on all spots.

Every friday 12.30 PM viewer time organized battles and races: for group membership:


We have spontaneausly events with dancing and music for group gatherings at Port Hope's theatre, organized by DJ Melanie Auxifur.

Come sail your own historical ship, free!! We made a ship ( see pic ) in a rezzer for all who wish to learn to sail the historical ship Statenjacht Utrecht. When you board the ship, a HUD for navigation will attach automatically on your avatar so you can start immediately testing the sails and the cannons! More people can rezz ships, so you can take your friends and have a test battle as well. You will find the rezzer by walking through the " sailing school " teleporter at our landing point, and you will find your way. There is a book close to the rezzer you can use as a tutorial , but we also arranged a personal teacher for you: IM in Kitely captain Snoots Dwagon for an appointment , he will lead you to a higher level in the sailing battles! Many thanks to Christine Nyn who made the rezzer for us. ( the ship flies a white flag, so no other captains will attack you! )

This is how sinking looks!! When you like action, we can provide you sailing lessons and a battle ship in a rezzer to join the fun !!!

Coming Friday the 22 th of March, we will celebrate the coming of spring with DJ Melanie Auxifur in Port Hope's theatre.
Chose the " Theatre/ dance floor" teleport at the landing place. Time: 1 PM viewer time, (for mid euro time , this is 9 PM)

Themed clothes not needed, but ... you can come as easter bunny, or as walking chocolate egg, we won't mind at all ! Archipelago

There is room for Gypsies now.

Chez Hans.. star restaurant in Port of Morgan :) for the ones who like dining while having a good convo!

A tall ship battle , ships with crews ! It's great fun. This is last ship standing ( mine :) ) burning! No cargo to steal, all was burned ! With many thanks to the Catronian Archipelago group members to make this event exciting.

We offer wonderful free homes to people , and also private islands. Check it out here!

We announce that we made a connection with the Vibel grid , " Neiferleaf " owned by Roland Francis.
Catronian Archipelago's members visited his sims and were very enthusiastic about theme and landscaping and we decided to connect the lands with teleporters on each others landing points. The purpose of this connection is to share traffic and make people with similar interests on different grids aware about the posibilities of role-play, and we also want to organise events that will take place on both grids. More information about this later.
You can easely find the gate to Neiferleaf on Catronian Archipelago 's landing point , a gazebo that will teleport you over or try

Enjoy the medieval theme, the wonderful forests and the great riding horses you can use to explore the lands. It's big, so take your time.
We are grateful Roland participates in this and work with us. For a fast impression on website:

16 sims for a skating tour ......

Welcome at our 11 cities skating tour !

In the Netherlands is a tradition in winter, when there is a long cold freezing period . They have the " eleven cities tour" ( Elfstedentocht) , a 200 km skating route that leads to eleven cities in the northern part of the Netherlands. It's very popular and the Dutch see it as an honor when you are able to skate the whole route in one day and get the " Friesche elfstedentocht " trophy as a reward.

We made a wonderful skating route for you with eleven checkpoints named to all the cities. When you find them all, you will earn the famous " eleven city tour cross "a trophy that is famous for all skaters all over the world ! The stamps , given to you at every checkpoint are the original stamps used in the tour in RL. Collectors items!

* Found all the stamps? Make a notecard , drag your stamp textures on it and sent it to Trouble Ahead.
Yay, when sending your full stamp notecard , you finished the tour and the famous "Elfstedenkruisje" ( trophy) will be sent to you, with some themed presents as well.

When you explore the place, you can find a Christmas market.

Find us in Kitely s main website " Catronian Archipelago" and use the teleporter near the landing point. Archipelago

Picture: the first winner of the tour , Miss Sea Pearl ( from The Netherlands )
Explore RavenSteyn. And who gives me the answer " what happened with the murder weapon" will get an original " ships and merchandise " ship of choice. From gunboats to tall ships! Click the coffins in the graveyard.

Catronian Archipelago has a new judge and major in its new city hall. . Please read below in case you need defense: ========================

Article 1
Dwagons are now offishully recognized as "Honorable Residents" and not as pirates and privateers as previously rumored. Snoots Dwagon shall be known as "His Honor" unless specific activities obviously indicate otherwise.

Article 2
Judge Snoots Dwagon's authority and judgment is conferred upon him for as long as he is willing to take the Honorable task of being Judge and Major of Catronian Archipelago. No other person shall take this role without The Honorable Dwagon's consent. This is a Title for Life. (Note that Dwagons are immortal, so that's a long time.)

Article 3
No Judge shall take a bribe of any kind from any entity, be it Navy, Seaman, Merchant or otherwise. However, donations are gladly accepted to the Orphaned Dwagons Fund for the protection of this rare and valuable species.

Article 4
The judge's judgment stands as given. No appeal is possible. However reconsideration of sentence may be possible upon donations to the aforementioned Orphaned Dwagons Fund.

Article 5
All witnesses on all cases are obliged to give him their honest stories whether true or not, swearing to say nothing but the truth by their hand (or paw) on the book of Catronian law, which doesn't currently exist but still the thought counts. Any law which is deemed to not exist at the time of Court and Judgment may be made up on the spot by the Honorable Judge.

Article 6
Accused ones can be defended by so called lawyers, attorneys and shysters, especially if they are too drunk to present their own defense or the evidence too clear and excessive for them to otherwise defend themselves.

Article 7
Judgment may be debated, discussed and cursed so long as members of the court bring enough rum for other participants participate equally. However the wisdom of Dwagon Judgment shall not be challenged nor doubted as Dwagons have two brains and the Judge has already thoroughly discussed the matter with himself.

Article 8
Any participant of court who proves unruly shall be removed forcibly from the courtroom, upon which they may pay the Judge to re-enter the court should they so desire.

Article 9
Punishments will be related to the deed of the crime, worse if the Honorable Judge is in a bad mood. Rumors that judgments may be tempered or lessened with bribes of gold, rum or cookies are emphatically denied.

Article 10
The Judge is allowed during his session of the court to use all fluid drinks that make his speech more sharply and his judgments more colorful.

Article 11
Captain Snoots Dwagon is permitted to change articles of the book of law on his own authority, and will announce any changes in Catronian Groups notices when he gets around to doing so. Any announcements not made shall be stated during or following a trial and shall be retroactive in nature.

Article 12
Law and order shall be the rule of the day. This applies to Navy, Pirates, Privateers, Captains, Gunners, Seamen, Merchants, Wenches, Swashbucklers and Scallywags regardless of race, creed or species.

Participants in the court are encouraged to wear flame-retardant materials.

-- This concludes the Catronian Book of Court Proceedure --

This document was written by educated professionals to be the core of Catronian Law and has not been at all influenced by Dwagons in any way.

To find the city hall and contact the Major: please use the TP to Port of Morgan, at the end of the docks you find Honorable Snoots Dwagon's residence.
Built as a city town house: A very realistic model from the city hall in Wernigerode Germany, one of the oldest one in Europe. Great fun to make such an old town house ( built in 16 th century ) into the virtual world in one of our ports.

Trouble Ahead : You can find this building at: Archipelago Please use the teleporter to Port of Morgan to see it in world. Soon available on Marketplace 10 months ago

If you visit our sims, you will find a giftbox with the Niitti Bwind scripted boat. Its Bwind scripts are full perm. Such a cute little sailing vessel! If you have one, use your Kitely avatar.

Great st Patrick s day !!

Newly SPD scripted Batavia is launched ! More info

Sailing race was fun! It will stay open for all who want to give it a try. Read more:

At our world Catroninan Archipelago we made a sailing race track.
For all sailors who like a little bit competition and excitement, we made maps and HUDs for navigation that will lead to 9 different turning points. Also the track is easy to find for captains during the race with huge steampunk balloon signs , showing you the way.
This sailing track is originally made for the Friday sailing event, but it's open for all players who like to rezz ships and give it a try.
( please clean up when you leave)
So take your friend, or group, and organise your race!
Catronian Archipelago can be found : Archipelago You will land at the docks. Near landing place, you find a life buoy that gives you HUD, information and map to get started.

All who love sailing are welcome, no matter if you sail Bwind ships, Kayaker Magic scripted ships or SPD scripted. The track is open for the coming weeks and maybe longer on request. If you don't have a ship of your own, ships are at the docks in rezzers.

If you want to join the Friday evening event (12.30 PM viewer time ) , we only allow SPD scripted ships for the sailing race.

Cheers and have fun.

Burning ships! Want to win such a ship? Visit Catronian Archipelago, enter the door to the Riddle stone hunt, search the gemstones ( you get gifts ) , solve the riddle and win a ship of your choice from this collection! You can use the ship to participate in our battles.

Find the riddle stone! We made a gemstone hunt , when you solve the riddle in the riddle stone, you can win one of the battle ships! TP is at landing point.

A wonderful day for some sailing. This is Duyfken , a model of the first Dutch ship reaching Australia (coincidentally)

We made an island for our group member Eduard Milev from Ukraine who we did not see in a long time. He made wonderful arms for all kinds of RP, scripted, and you can visit this island and see his work. Visit our sims and the shipwrights shop to TP there. Or search his name in Kitely Marketplace.

Jerralyn Franzic: Awesome, hope he's doing well. :) 1 years ago

More islands .... every island has its own story and secret. If you are curious ...
